CGTN published this video item, entitled “Report rebukes claims of forced labor in Xinjiang” – below is their description.
Is it really “forced labor” that is happening in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region?
Nilufer Gheyret and Chen Ning, visiting research fellows at Jinan University’s Institute for Communication and Borderland Governance, have written an investigative paper rebuking the claims of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute that Uygurs in Xinjiang were coerced into labor and relocation.
The two Chinese scholars, who call the autonomous region home, said following the interviews of some 70 migrant workers from Xinjiang working in south China’s Guangdong Province, including some who worked in factories singled out by the Australian paper, they hope to report the real rationale behind their decision to move.CGTN YouTube Channel

Xinjiang, an autonomous territory in northwest China, is a vast region of deserts and mountains. It’s home to many ethnic minority groups, including the Turkic Uyghur people. The ancient Silk Road trade route linking China and the Middle East passed through Xinjiang, a legacy that can be seen in the traditional open-air bazaars of its oasis cities, Hotan and Kashgar.
